1- The overall objective of the BIA is to identify the impact of outages. More specifically, the goal is to identify the critical functions that can affect the organization.

So those work hand in hand in defining what we need to put in place to meet our objectives; one being how quickly we need things to be recovered and the other being to what point in time.
